An uncommon manifestation of phototoxicity, photo-onycholysis results in the separation of the distal nail from the nail bed. Photo-onycholysis may follow the use of various medications or may occasionally be idiopathic. We present a case of photo-onycholysis in a patient treated with doxycycline for acne vulgaris.

The onset of her photo-onycholysis was delayed because of inadvertent photoprotection in the form of artificial nails and occurred in the absence of a generalized photosensitive eruption. Her nails returned to normal after withdrawal of the drug and application of opaque nail polish. Read More
